4-H Tropicana Public Speaking Program

Classroom Resources for Educators

School enrichment curriculum resources are an important part to the 4-H program in Florida. The best time to teach people to talk and think on their feet is when they are young. This is the objective of the 4-H/Tropicana Public Speaking Program. The Program is sponsored by Tropicana and administered through the 4-H Youth Development Program, Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Florida.

Program Overview

Program Implementation for the School

Keep in mind that you will register and place an order through Eventbrite and your school will receive their Certificates for each participant, 1st-3rd place ribbons for each class competition, and 1st-3rd place neck medallions for the School contest through the county PDC. You may Print off your own Lesson plan, Introductory letters to parents, Speech Tip Sheets, Judging Forms if you wish to do; however, these materials will be provided for you when placing your Eventbrite order if indicated yes on order.



Registration will be available online through out the school year. Please make sure to give your school enough time to implement the program before the Winner Reports are due MAY 4th, 2018 for the County Competition that will be held May 11th, 2018.

Here are the steps to register your school:

  1. First, you will register your school by placing one “order ticket” per grade per school. With each order you will indicate the number of classes and students participating. This is also where you will indicate if you will need paper supplies.
  2. Next, each class will prepare for and hold a Classroom Contest with a result of 1st-3rd place winners. These 3 students will move on to the school wide contest. After selecting classroom winners, your school will hold a school wide contest and select 1st-3rd places in each grade.
  3. The 1st place winner for each grade will then move on to the County Competition. Each School will need to place another online registration through Eventbrite to report their school winners to us for the county competition.
